Senior Vatican Cardinal warns ‘demonic’ transgender rights are causing the ‘death of God’

A senior Catholic cardinal has rallied against LGBT rights in a Washington DC prayer breakfast, telling lawmakers that trans people are “demonic” and gay unions are a danger to society.

Cardinal Robert Sarah, who is influential in the Vatican and holds the title Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, made the comments in his address to the annual DC National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.

The event was attended by lawmakers from across Congress, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

In his keynote speech, the Cardinal said: “The death of God results in the burial of good, beauty, love and truth. Good becomes evil, beauty is ugly, love becomes the satisfaction of sexual primal instincts, and truths are all relative.

“So all manner of immorality is not only accepted and tolerated today in advanced societies, but even promoted as a social good. The result is hostility to Christians, and, increasingly, religious persecution.

1. So, mere mortals can kill "God"

 

Not very godlike, is he?

I really don't need lectures about sexual identity and morality from pedophiles and their apologists.

2. Yeah. The LGBT community is all powerful. (((sarcasm))) Whatever happened to 'Love One Another'?

Besides, I'm also interested in who attended this event right before voting on this matter in the House.

We can see that Paul Ryan was there.

3. I was wondering about the context

He is an African from Guinea, appointed by Francis. he was ticked off by the UN talking to countries about lifting all their sanctions- as preaching down by the Europeans and imposing. From that natural defense it went downhill from there and shows despite all the education in the world that hardcore cultural morality will out.

5. No. Just NO.

The world's wealthiest organization, with the greatest real estate holdings, is protecting the rapists of hundreds of thousands of children on an ongoing basis and has done so for tens, perhaps hundreds of years or more. Possibly far more.

THAT is a danger to society.

Not two people who are born gay falling in love and getting married.

Not a person who is born trans and just wants to live their life.

The rapist. The molesters. The superiors that move them and pressure local law enforcement to let them handle it internally. The moving of money to deny payment to victims. The convening of groups to study the matter yet do nothing of substance. The continued avoidance of following the law in whatever country they are in. The insistence that they can do all this because "God's law supersedes man's law".

THAT is the danger to society.
